Sharia law in UK is unavoidable

Sharia law in UK is 'unavoidable'

Dr Williams says Muslims should have a choice in legal disputes
The Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams says the adoption of Islamic Sharia law in the UK is "unavoidable".
Dr Williams told BBC Radio 4's World at One that the UK has to "face up to the fact" that some of its citizens do not relate to the British legal system.

He says Muslims should not have to choose between "the stark alternatives of cultural loyalty or state loyalty".

Dr Williams argues that establishing Sharia law in the UK would help maintain social cohesion.

In an exclusive interview ahead of a lecture to lawyers in London later on Monday, Dr Williams proposes that Muslims be able to choose whether to have issues like marital disputes or financial matters dealt with in Sharia-compliant proceedings or the existing legal system.

Dr Williams argues this relies on Sharia law being better understood. At the moment, he says "sensational reporting of opinion polls" clouds the issue.

He stresses that "nobody in their right mind would want to see in this country the kind of inhumanity that's sometimes been associated with the practice of the law in some Islamic states".

Well, Rowan did refer to himself as a bearded leftie - a self-fulfilling prophesy it would seem.
I tend to the Aussie Rules thing: this is our country; you want to come in, you play by our rules. You don't want to play by our rules, the door is over there, don't slam it on your way out.

if we can make up our own legal systems.... I want my own one too!!

I get to do what I want, when I want, who I want.

We cannot make up our own laws.

You (the people who want sharia) live in this country because it is a good (relatively) place to live. This is in no small part because of our laws. If you want to live under a different legal system - go somewhere else.

Ski.

Did any one actually read what he said, only for civil matters where it would be no different in effect to the various other non court based systems for dealing with disputes. Our law would merely see it as another mediation/arbritration system.

Just for a moment think of the benefits, less clutter in the courts, less money ,making opportunity fro lawyers, now that has to be good.

maxi 77 - this would open the door and then you can never go back! - mind you stoning women to death and cutting hands off in Trafalgar square might bring in more tourists!

In Islamic countries our laws would never be allowed - quite rightly as its their country - the same goes here

...and breathe. :)

If Rowan Williams wants to take the Church further into the mire which is current UK politics, maybe he should be so good as to spend the next few weeks touring the UK's Mosques and explaining this to the moderate majority and see just what their thoughts are on this. Maybe next time he fancies taking the media by storm he could do it with the slightest insight into the mindset of those he seeks to salve. Surprising the government hasn't put the CoE out to a PFI deal with one of the big five yet - think about the real estate possibilities. :)

The man is a fúckwit of the first distillation.

Apart from small issue that once the islamists are given this victory and will then demand that Sharia is applied to all aspects of law, what would the effect on applying (as suggested) Sharia law to a muslim couple who want to divorce?

The evidence of the woman is worth 1/2 that of a man (at best), so muslim women would get nothing, while the husband gets everything (including the 'right' to marry off his 4 year old daughter to his 64 year old cousin in Pakistan. Hardly in keeping with 'justice' is it?

How many people will have illegal pressure applied to force trhem to accept Sharia? etc etc etc.

And if, for example, there is a civil financial dispute between a Muslim and a non-Muslim and the Muslim insists on Sharia Law?

This is one for lawyers who can see a gold mine ahead!

It's not really surprising that he comes out with such garbage, after all he doesn't really live in the real world does he?. It's time all these non-elected "spokesmen" were ignored.
